SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE
Phoenix Arizona

 

At the Desert Botanical Garden, Samantha and traveler Jack Maxwell take in the stunning beauty of wildflowers and blooming cactus as they walk the Sonoran Desert trails. They then hit up the popular Breadfruit & Rum Bar, who serve up unique Jamaican dishes and carefully concocted rum cocktails. At Cosanti Originals, Samantha leans the art of bronze pouring and bell making. From there, Samantha visits the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Taliesin West, which served as Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and architectural school. Exploring the one-of-a-kind Musical Instrument Museum, Samantha experiences over 7,000 instruments collected from around 200 of the world’s countries and territories. Samantha then gets the ultimate farm to table restaurant experience at The Farm at South Mountain, whose focus includes self-sustainability and locally created arts. Sparking her theater roots, Samantha visits the brilliant Black Theatre Troupe, whose productions illuminate the African-American experience and culture.
